The new car environmental label has recently been redesigned by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (working with the Department for Transport and Vehicle Certification Agency).

The new label allows motorists to quickly compare monthly running costs, identify a vehicle’s emission figures and, for plug-in hybrids and pure electric cars, understand the electric range.

All the information on the label uses the latest, more reliable and robust WLTP figures.

NFDA and LowCVP have also produced a consumer guide to make showroom visitors and staff aware of the redesigned car label and how the new information helps motorists choose the lowest carbon car for their journey.

Dealers should ensure that the New Car Environmental Label is displayed in a clearly visible manner on or near each new passenger car on sale at dealerships. We encourage our members to contact us if they require any guidance or clarifications.
